    Yes I have used a Z plugger. The Z plugger is a great machine and very reliable, plus ton of attachents.

    First of all I am very impressed with the Lawn solutions aerator.

    Very Fast,

    Awesome plugs

    So far I love it!

    Did 11 aerations today.

    This is a machine for the guys who really wants to do volume.

    I'm going to do around 150 aerations with it this year so hopefully it will handle my workload.

    Nice Rabbit!

    Are you the first one to get one of these in your state? :)

    Give me a call tomorrow on one of your breaks (ha ha) if you get a chance and fill me in on this bad machine.

    I am still thinking about it!!!!!!

    I do believe right now I am the first in the state! David told me One other company will get one here! Grassman sorry but already sold the zplugger.
    The z plugger is a work horse. If anyone can break a machine it is me. I used the zplugger for 3 years. I love new equipment and had to give the Lawn solution aerator a try. The machine is very well built. I cant wait to use it tomorrow. I love aerating next to a guy with a walking aerator on another yard. They just stop and watch me as I finish 3 to four times faster than them.
    I can't imagine doing aerations with a walking aerator. I am going to do a 7 acre property with it next week i will let you guys know how fast I get it done.
    David said it will do 2 acres a hour.
